Real-name Requests

108 posts in this topic

It's funny cause people think SyumiSan is my real name when it isn't lol. But all seriousness, I do not mind sharing my real name, It is unique to me cause I do not know many people with it either hahahaha. Wanna know? Just ask :P

Uhh, my name is David...and I'm an addict. At first it was just one, y'know? It was exciting, fun and a lot of other people were doing it too. It made me feel good about myself, then it started to be all I thought about. Soon i started using whatever i could get my hands on, no matter if it was the premium regular stuff or cheap and uncheerful stuff to fuel the habit. Then it was less fun, I was losing sleep and gaining agitation, it was then I realised, it was just Hannah Montana and Ice Age 3, it didn't matter at all. I've since changed my ways and my account since then and so far I'm 6 years clean, but if even one person can learn a lesson from me then this has all been worth it. Thank you.

 

P.S I don't mind if people on my friends lit know my name as I don't usually add people I don't know on at least some friendly level or know I will get to know them to that standard.

I set my real life name as Rollo TheCat so I don't care.
The name is based on Tales of Xillia 2 cat Rollo.

I am a rather private person, so if we know each other IRL, then sure, I'll accept it. But with strangers I tend to refuse and send a regular friend request back. I don't mind giving my first name to people I trust, or whom I am on a friendly basis with. However because my surname is quite rare, I've set up a fake one to bamboozle people.

 

The thought of strangers on the internet being able to know my address or what I do for a living based on my name makes me kind of uncomfortable tbh. 😬

I've never quite understood why people demand real name requests.  I mean, why is it so important?  The names we use on PSN should be enough, or even on this site. :rolleyes:

 

I could care less what anyone's real name is.

I think for certain people its just another OCD they have. I used to like my friend list organized/uniformed. I used to not take real name as it messes up the order. Now Im ok with it, mostly for friends I had talk to regularly. Its a conflict to myself. Some just dont like it even though I know where they live, their name, school they go to everything...#shrugs.

I got several real name requests over the last couple of weeks and I hate it. I barely know most of my "friends" on PS4 and I don't understand why they need to know my real name. One of them kept messaging me with "real name request?" over and over again until I deleted him from my friends' list. Not a single one of my IRL friends I sometimes play with have asked for it.

I also don't like when people put their face as their profile pic. This is not facebook.

Just because I removed your appendix when you were drunk one night...doesn't mean I am shady :ninja:

 

Ha ha ha ha perhaps but the fact you didn't take any rum is pretty shady.

I don't even pay attention of what kind of request I have received, anyway I love my name and don't see a threshold for sharing it.

I don’t have any problems in sharing my real name. I always accept the requests. It’s just my name and I actually feel more comfortable using it than my PSN ID. Hopefully, we will be able to change ID’s soon and I will be able to change mine to something similar to my real name.

Well I knew you would notice if I took the rum. I figured I was safe just taking some useless body parts instead :P

Lol you know my priorities. Although this doesn't explain the missing kidney, it's not a useless body part :shakefist:

Nobody believes me when I tell them my real name is Debora until they see it on PSN.

I don't share my real life name with anyone unless it's a friend that I can trust and I have known for at least two or three years.

 

For most people I only share my first name.

A second liver would've been nice.

I don't get why someone would be so private to reveal their name, unless you live a cover life, a stranger can't do much with knowing your real name.

I don't see a thread on this issue, but I was wondering how comfortable everyone was with receiving real-name requests on PS4. I received one today from an individual on my friend list who I don't know all that well, and I have mixed feelings about that. Thoughts?

 

While I don't give out my real name randomly online, I don't think it's that big of a deal in the end.

I just put Świętożyźń Konstantynopolitanczykowianeczka to troll with people, never shared my real name with people I've met online, there's way too many weirdos/creeps out there.

I never really liked your real name being displayed on PS4 so I just used a fake  goofy one anyway. 

 

Wouldn’t really see the need to share names unless they’re a close PSN friend or someone I already know irl, but it’s all down to preference.

Never bothered me, if someone randomly requests my real name I'll always accept.

I don't have that many weird requests, maybe because people think that's already my real name. :)

I usually have a name in there that I find funny and normally change it every few weeks. I send real life friends name requests to try to get a laugh out of them. 90% of the time, they're doing the same thing lol.
